The Domaine Pascal Granger is located in the hamlet of Les Poupets within the village of Juliénas in the heart of the finest sector of the Beaujolais district. This estate has been in the Granger family for over two hundred years, dating to Napoleonic times, and has passed from father to son continually. The domaine encompasses 14 hectares with vineyard holdings in the home village of Juliénas and extending through the neighboring villages of Jullié, Chénas, La Chapelle de Guinchay and Leynes. All harvesting is done manually and treatments in the vineyards are minimal with weed-growth tolerated between the vines.
Juliénas “Clos des Poulettes” Cru de Beaujolais: Pascal Granger works an esteemed 1.6-hectare clos located just outside the village of Juliénas. This wine is fermented using natural yeasts in stainless steel and concrete vats with roughly 30% whole bunches (depends on the year). The wine is then moved into older demi-muids to age for an additional 6 months before being assembled and bottled.
Medium plus body with red fruits, violets, and a savory note that has developed with the age of the wine. Delicious
